1828 C-3 R1. PCGS graded MS-64 Red. CAC Approved. Mint red toning to light steel brown on the highest points, 90% of the mint color remaining. The only marks are a tiny steel spot at the dentils under the 82, specks of similar toning at ES, and another at the right base of the A in HALF. These "defects" are insignificant but can help identify this piece. E-MDS, Manley state 2.0 early. Die polishing has removed the clashmarks from the obverse but the repunching is still clear on star 7. The obverse fields are prooflike with moderately deep mirrors and the reverse fields are slightly prooflike, although those mirrors are not as deep. Outstanding eye appeal, once thought to be a proof strike. The obverse is shown in the color plates at the back of the Breen book and both sides are plated to illustrate the variety on page 84 in the second edition of the Cohen reference. Our grade is MS65. Certainly one of the finest known. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest in RD for the variety. (PCGS # 35263) .
Estimated Value $5,000-UP.
